My boys and I were skunked today.  We launched from the mostly empty boat ramp by the Pelican's Nest... and were in the water by 6:30am.  Wind was from the N as about 5mph.  Overcast morning.  River water temp was 47.3 degrees.  We came out of the river and headed east following the color line in 35' of water about 43 - 44 degrees.  We were pulling Cleo Red/Gold, Rapala jdhd-12 in Crawdad & Rapala hj-08 in blue/silver... about 75' - 100' directly behind the boat.  About 8:30 am we turned around and headed back west and came into about 15'-19' of water down past the Genesee outlet and ran for about another 2 miles.  Not a thing...  not even a bump.  Running speed was between 2 and 3 mph.  Would like to try it again but Ontario consistantly gives me nothing.

What did we do wrong?

Ok... so looks like I need to get closer in.  What time of the day were you out?

Planer boards would help get your lures in shallow while keeping the boat out a bit. Also maybe a little slower, 2.2 - 2.5. Sometimes they are in shallow, sometimes 12-18 ft. And sometimes we get skunked :) Keep trying, one of these times your pole will double over and you'll fight a 12 lb brown till your arms are tired

I was out 3pm . I took the boat out for quick run to make sure everything was ok. I shot down near braddocks and stayed in the stained water. I keep the boat 1.8mph + this time of yr

^^^ Yup 1.8-2.0 seems to be the speed right now.  I knew we were going too slow the first time we made a turn and the outside planer board line immediately got a hit...
